Festival of Lights

A.D.O.P.T. is continuing its tradition of the “FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS,” providing the opportunity for pet lovers and A.D.O.P.T. supporters to honor or memorialize loved ones and special pets through a tribute light on our FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS CELEBRATION TREE.

The FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS CELEBRATION TREE will be illuminated on December 14th with ornaments personalized with the name of the person or pet being celebrated or memorialized.

Rather than purchase a gift for everyone on your holiday shopping list, perhaps a donation to A.D.O.P.T. on their behalf is a consideration. An acknowledgment of your donation in their name will be sent to them. (See order form below)

Even when the tree lighting is over, you can continue to purchase a light or ribbon through December 24th.

Tree of Lights


Download the form using the button below. For each individual or pet, select a light or ribbon from the list, and then list the name and relationship of the individual or pet to be acknowledged in the spaces provided. You may also have an acknowledgment of the tribute sent to another person. For instance, if you would like to acknowledge a loved one of a friend or family member, they can receive a copy of the acknowledgment as well. Simply provide their name and address in the optional Acknowledgement section of the form.

Lights/ribbons may be ordered through December 24th.

Note: Requests for acknowledgment to another person must be received by Dec 14th to ensure delivery by December 25th.
Memorial Ornament

Tribute lights may be reserved for a donation of $10 per light/ribbon.

  • White lights honor the memory of loved ones
